all ripe Poona Kheera cukes
I clipped an entry from High Mowing Seeds for you to check out regarding this Poona Kheera Cucumber. It’s been such a solid producer for us, year after year, and an exceptionally tastey cuke all throughout it’s changing colors. Hope you enjoy as much as we have! So fresh, crunchy & juicy. We also have the green cukes: both “slicers” (smooth green skin), and picklers (green, spiked skin). The poona kheras have come in first this season, the greens are following close behind in time.
|Organic Poona Kheera Cucumber – A favorite in our trials! A specialty variety from India with great flavor, quality and field resistance to disease compared to similar varieties. Cucumbers are light yellow-green when young and begin turning russet-brown at full maturity. Traditionally sold at light-green stage, but the flavor is best when harvested just as browning begins; skin has a sugary sweet flavor and flesh is juicy and crisp. Heavy producer. Climbs easily on trellis to 5-6’. ()
Days to maturity: 50 days
